A-Main Hobbies brought along a prototype of the new JS Model Frenzy 90 with them to IRCHA. Ben Storick was here flying it all weekend and it looked very impressive in the air. What’s even more impressive is the estimated street price, $400![SinglePic not found]

Wednesday had a lingering haze that took the good part of the day to burn off. Thursday however was a perfect bluebird day at sunrise and then a couple scattered clouds rolled in later in the day. Most the day a slight breeze kept us from cooking too much in the Indiana summer sun. The flight line went from being 75% full to pretty much 100% full today. There were pop-up canopies from one end to the other, and a second row forming on the other side of the mid alley. Every flight station I passed by had anywhere from 3-6 people waiting to fly, the flight line was extremely busy today. Vendors were completely setup and ready to show off all the latest products they brought with them. I’m stunned by the amount of vendor booths at IRCHA, they alone are bigger then most fun flies. Read on for some highlights of today’s activities…
Touted as a true “native electric 90 design”, the Avant Aurora 90E officially splashed onto vendor row late Thursday. The 90 electric market has really taken off this season and Avant has answered those wishes with a electric flavor of their popular nitro heli.
